(MENAFN) International Data Corp. (IDC) stated that in the current year, global mobile phone market is forecasted to expand by just 1.4 percent from 2011, reported Xinhua News.

The research firm attributed the growth, the slowest in 3 years, to the prevailing global economic conditions.

Nevertheless, global smartphone shipments will surge 45.1 percent in 2012 to 717.5 million units, due to strong device subsidies from telco firms in developed markets, and more options of lower-cost handsets in emerging markets, including China

Globally, retailers are projected to sell a total of over 1.7 billion units of mobile phones in 2012, including smartphones.
